unfortunately, being a used bike with the carb already on I do not know if the boot was swapped or not. Basically it was just not tightened down well enough and the clamp "head" was in a position as such to be able to be jostled easily. I did not see it right off, but dick did as soon as I got it back over to him... I am still not so sure about all of the power wheelie claims I read in "whatever" gear... Right now I do know that it is exciting again to ride - acceleration wise... If I was doing it all over again, i would definitely instill this carb on this bike.
I am looking forward to seeing what an exhaust will do next!
